Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Be Featured in New Polar STEAM Magazine Polynya!

Are you a woman working in polar sciences, research, Traditional Knowledge, Indingeous Knowledge, advocacy, or the arts? 

We want to feature you! Published by The Anchorage Museum and supported by the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, Polynya is a new free magazine that aims to activate a culture shift among middle school students, with a special emphasis on girls living in the Arctic and sub-Arctic, to see women as trailblazers of Arctic traditional and western sciences. Polynya will illuminate polar research and achievements by those who identify as women and those who were designated female but self-identify differently across all races and ethnicities, with a particular focus on Indigenous scientists, knowledge holders, and artists. Published four times a year, we are working with school districts, public libraries, and afterschool programs to freely distribute the magazine in 2021 to middle school students. 

In order to be featured, we ask that you please fill out this short Google Form below with a few questions about your professional journey, your work, and what you do for fun:

Our volunteer team will help create a draft article about you, which we will send to you for review before publication.
If you have any questions please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We want girls to see themselves in every corner of the polar community and are excited to feature you as part of that effort.
